Does Anyone know why ISS would be flagging this:


It is a Server 2k3 Machine. No NT Machines on the network. No apps
needing NetBIOS. We have disabled NetBIOS on the NIC and it still shows


M Root Share: SMB NetBIOS entire drive available (CVE-1999-0520)

Vuln count = 3

NetBIOS allows full access to the entire hard drive. By sharing the
entire drive, any new additions to this drive are automatically made



Restrict the share to specific directories or require stronger
authentication for access.
